22oz bottle. Light orange color with a very large rocky white head. Spicy pine and ruddy earthen hops in the aroma. Biscuit and caramel malt flavors underneath an herbaceous floral hop character. Pine and some citrus manifest. Ruddy malt dominates the finish, with some vegetal bitterness. Mouthfeel is a heavy medium, somewhat dry.

Draft pour. Pours a light orange with a hoppy, boozy aroma. A lot of orange and hop flavors. Finishes really bitter. Strong. Not my go to IPA but at the same time not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark golden color, good fine foam. Pine smell, mix some grass freshness. Foretaste is not very hoppy, it has citrus hint, it’s sour sweet and bitter, those 3 tastes mix together. It has some smoke and hop bitterness at end. The hop is a very bitter hop, but not fruity, it gives mandarin like taste, give a dry feeling on mouth. This beer is not domain by the hop, so there’s reserved sugar balance the hop. This beer has a little caramel and banana ester at rear, not obvious. Not very impressed, yet not bad. It has good score on ratebeer, that’s why I buy it, seems not match my score. Found it’s bottle conditioned, so maybe I should wait months for a better taste? Haha, who knows.

On draft at Tap 25. It pours a golden color with an off white head. The aroma is strong with citrus leafy herbals and lime. The flavor has strong citrus bitterness with some lighter notes of caramel and bread. Intense citrus with a tad too much caramel malt. Good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at front door, Boise. Sharper, and smoother, version of their bottled edition. Cask conditioning adds smoothness and lots of citrus character. Hops still come through loud and clear, but have the edges rounded off. Very nicely done.
Earlier Rating: 11/14/2013 Total Score: 4
nice and tart citrus and pine. Cloudy orange amber with thick robust creamy head lots of sticky lacing. Aroma of oranges and pine trees. Flavor is astringent citrus, pine, malt. Sharp but not overbearing.
